About this site

KingdomExclusion.com provides critical analysis of doctrines maintaining that some aspect of redemption is reserved for the millennial kingdom. It is the position here that “kingdom exclusion” does not accord with scripture; in some instances, it departs completely from orthodoxy.

KingdomExclusion.com is a journalistic enterprise.

About this site
KingdomExclusion.com was established to supply an additional perspective on the teaching of exclusion, a branch of theology stemming from dispensationalism. As one of the chief criticisms of the teaching is that the “traditional” church has largely abandoned God’s truths, the publisher of this site believes it is necessary to answer in the form of critical research.

Called variously “millennial” or “kingdom exclusion,” “the accountability gospel,” or the “Word of the Kingdom,” exclusion was advanced by the late Robert Govett, the late A. Edwin Wilson, and the late Watchman Nee. Current advocates are Arlen L. Chitwood and J.D. Faust, among others.

About the term “kingdom exclusion”
It’s not certain who coined the phrase, kingdom exclusion, but it dates to the 19th century. In contemporary times, the phrase is employed by J.D. Faust in his comprehensive study on the subject, The Rod: Will God Spare It? When referring to Faust’s particular understanding of the teaching, however, the phrase is capitalized and placed in quotation marks. Some advocates of exclusion reject this designation, preferring other terms. In those instances the preferred designation is employed. Thus, when referring to Arlen L. Chitwood’s distinct understanding of the subject, the phrase “Word of the Kingdom” is employed, capitalized and in quotation marks. — return to contents
